I'm actually using the community LXQt/KDE version dated 2019.06.18 on real hardware (12 year-old desktop with Pentium D CPU, 3 GHz, 6 GB RAM, I use only LXQt DE). It's a complete OS and the first distro that hasn't been intend me to switch back to Manjaro. Great work!

I distro-hop a lot and this is now my favourite OS by a long way. I like Gentoo on my big PC but it's not so good on my little travel laptop because of the compile times; Artix is everything I like about Gentoo but without all that compilation. My 9-year-old i5 laptop runs like lightning with this.

If you've done anything with Gentoo, Linux from Scratch etc. it's simple to install a basic system and put on XFCE, lightdm etc. and be up and running in no time. Add pamac and it's about the easiest Linux system to configure and modify that there is, and no systemd (if that's not your thing). Using the OpenRC version means any information you can't find specific to Artix can usually be copied from the Gentoo wiki. Forum is quite helpful for support with bugs. Access to the AUR as well means there is a large ecosystem of available packages.

I've tried to install Gentoo but it failed. I'm looking for Manjaro OpenRC but it has been discontinued. and I hoped this project never be halted, I love OpenRC it makes me better.
